Souls Returning: Day of the Dead 2016

October 1 through november 13

Guest curator: Winda Shimizu

The celebration of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) focuses on the belief that the spirits of lost loved ones, often represented by the monarch butterfly, return from another world to be with their friends and family for one night. It is a time of celebration, remembrance and honor through art, food, music, the building of altars in memory of loved ones, sharing stories and connecting with your community. This year's exhibition explores all the various stages and symbolism of the celebration through the artwork of more than twenty-five local artists.

Opening reception: Friday, September 30, 5:30-7:30 PM
